Hi,My name is Kasia Wasko.
I am The Lead UX Designer on Digital Guidance and Advice at Capital One. Through empathy, I strive to create intuitive products and services that solve complex customer problems. As a leader, I seek to develop an inclusive, empathetic and Collaborative team with resilience and a strong bias for action.
My interests in leadership began early in my career, when I saw that the UX Design discipline needed continued advocacy, and cross disciplinary partnership in order for Design to have a seat at the table. I have actively lead internal process development, team building, and mentoring across organizations such as Spyder Trap and Capital One.
My introduction into UX began at in university at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. After graduation, I began working as a Interaction Designer at a boutique agency called Sevnthsin. I have designed and developed several mobile platforms and led the design for the Filter iPad application. I went on to Olson where I worked as a User Experience designer and specialist. I worked directly as a UX strategist and designer new business team on innovative pitches. Solo, I led projects for wet n wIld, Baylor College of Medicine, and Sharp. In collaboration with my teammates, we tackled large scale sites for Polaris and Aurora.
Within my role at Spyder Trap, I have led the development of internal process. I began the user experience discipline within my team, and worked across all departments to collaborate on client work. A large amount of our clients require continuous consulting for the development of their business. I have been managing and strategizing the development of User Experience approaches for all clients coming into Spyder Trap. This includes Deliotte, Optum Health, United Health Care, and ABC Companies.
During my career, I have been teaching UX and Web Design and mentoring new students at the Minneapolis College of Art & Design. I have helped a variety of young to senior level professionals find new paths in UX Design. I spent a great deal of time evaluating performance, and project work. It’s been a great experience to develop others and watch them grow.
